PlayStation Network crashing due to mass PlayStation 4 logons

PlayStation Network crashing due to mass PlayStation 4 logons (NYSE:SNE)
| Gaming Consoles News | Posted: Nov 15, 2013 8:14 pm

The PlayStation 4 was launched today and thousands of people in the US and Canada are having problems logging into the PlayStation Network with error codes such as NW-31453-6 or NP-3500-8 and a message saying "The network connection has been lost." This is due to the mass of activity from people trying to logon their consoles. Seeing that today is still launch day in the US the problem might just be getting worse with the amount of people that that still want to pick up or purchase their consoles today.




Sony said that a fix is on the way and are asking users to be patient, but the message from their site has been removed for some reason. Users that are currently trying to download the launch day patch can also go on PlayStation's website and put the download on to a flash drive and upload it to your PlayStation 4.


Sony's message: "The PlayStation Network is experiencing extremely high volume, some users may experience some difficulty connecting. We ask for your patience."
